Crossroads welcomed the talented Autumn Rhodes and Darcy Noonan and the high-stepping Brosnan School of Irish Dance to the Children’s Hour, a perennial Festival favorite! Since 2010, Autumn Rhodes and Darcy Noonan have been bringing traditional Irish music with a novel twist to the Bay Area and beyond. From the high-energy driving rhythm of Irish jigs and reels to slower-paced airs with sean-nós (‘old style’) songs (sung in both Irish and English), they stay well in touch with the roots of the music, while infusing it with their own special style. The duo played several instruments, including fiddle, Irish flute concertina and tin whistle. Children enjoyed a chance to learn and sing along to a few Irish Gaelic children’s songs, too.
